KANSAS CITY, Mo. Air Jordan 3 Ireland Online . -- Ian Kennedy served up four home runs while striking out eight batters, all in less than five innings, which led the Royals pitcher to sum up his performance quite succinctly.I dont know if Ive ever pitched that bad, he said, and got that many strikeouts.The strikeout total was just about the only highlight in Kansas Citys 11-4 loss to AL Central-leading Cleveland on Wednesday. Tyler Naquin hit two of the Indians five home runs while driving in a career-best six runs, and Carlos Carrasco tossed six shutout innings in a dominant performance.It was kind of a weird game, Kennedy said. When I was falling behind guys, they made me pay for it. But every time I got ahead, I got outs. It was kind of weird.Carrasco (7-3) only allowed one hit, a one-out double by Cheslor Cuthbert in the fourth he followed with back-to-back strikeouts. He walked two in the sixth for his only other baserunners.Mike Napoli, Jason Kipnis and Carlos Santana had the Indians other home runs.Kansas City scored all its runs off reliever Austin Adams in the eighth.Its not the way we planned the series to go, said the Royals Eric Hosmer. Weve got to find some way to get hot and turn things around. Were just not getting it done right now.The division-leading Indians, who are 4-5 against the hapless Minnesota Twins this season, improved to 26-8 against the rest of the AL Central. They are 8-5 against the Royals.The Royals are really hard to play here, Indians manager Terry Francona said. We did a really good job here (two win two of three).For the second day in a row, a first-inning homer -- this time by Kipnis, his 16th -- gave them instant offense. Naquin added a solo shot in the third before adding a two-run double in the fourth.Cleveland put away the game with a seven-run fifth inning.With a heat index of 105 degrees at first pitch, Carrasco coolly sliced up a Kansas City offense that scored seven runs in a single inning in the opener. The right-hander retired 17 of the first 18 batters he faced around his lone single, and he struck out six while throwing just 84 pitches.He won for the fifth time in six outings and improved to 6-1 in eight starts in Kansas City.Kennedy wound up allowing seven runs and six hits in 4 1/3 innings for the Royals. It was a rare poor start for him at Kauffman Stadium; he entered the game with an AL-best 2.11 ERA at home.Then again, it was also his ninth straight game serving up at least one homer, and hes now allowed 26 of them this season, tied with teammate Chris Young for most in the majors.I guess any time you give up a home run, you try to justify it a little bit, Kennedy said. The ball was flying a little bit, but theyre homers. The curveball to Naquin -- thats a second time Ive given up a home run to a left-hander to left field. You dont see that very often.PRESIDENTIAL VISITThe Royals will meet President Barack Obama at the White House on Thursday during a ceremony to honor their World Series title. It will be the fifth president that manager Ned Yost has met: Jimmy Carter and George Bush used to come to Braves games when Yost coached in Atlanta, George W. Bush threw out the first pitch on opening day once, and Bill Clinton greeted the champion Braves at the White House in 1996. So this will be my fifth president, Yost said, which is kind of cool.TRAINERS ROOMRoyals: LF Alex Gordon got the day off as he continues to battle out of a season-long slump. Hes hitting just .200 through 62 games after signing a $72 million, four-year deal in the offseason. He missed several weeks with a fractured wrist in a collision with 3B Mike Moustakas.Indians: OF Michael Brantley was expected to have an MRI exam on his ailing right shoulder Wednesday, though the results were not yet available. Brantley experienced a setback while on a rehab assignment.UP NEXTThe Royals open a three-game set Friday night against Texas. The Indians also have a day off before visiting Baltimore on Friday night. Wholesale Air Jordan 3 Ireland . - Blake Griffin had 30 points and 12 rebounds, J. Air Jordan 3 Retro Ireland . PAUL, Minn. http://www.airjordan3ireland.com/ . The 25-year-old Japanese star has officially been posted by his club team, the Rakuten Golden Eagles. MANCHESTER, England -- With his team 1-0 down and toiling against Arsenal, Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola slipped and tumbled to the ground in the technical area after kicking the ball back into play.Guardiola got back to his feet, dusted himself down and gestured to his team to keep going.On a day of recoveries in the English Premier League, City answered its coachs call.City scored twice in a stirring second-half performance to rally to a 2-1 win over Arsenal in a match between two teams battling to stay in sight of in-form league leader Chelsea.After Leroy Sane equalized in the 47th minute, Raheem Sterling scored the winner in the 71st minute when he collected a stunning cross-field ball from Kevin De Bruyne, cut inside and drove a low finish in at the near post.City moved into second place and back to within seven points of Chelsea, which has won 11 straight games to take control of the title race nearly halfway through the season.Seven points is still a huge distance from a team who made 11 wins in a row, Guardiola said, who urged his team to be there as much as possible and wait for (Chelsea) to fail.Tottenham also rallied to a 2-1 win after falling behind early to Burnley. Danny Rose grabbed the winning goal -- in the 71st minute, like Sterling -- to leave fifth-place Spurs a point behind Arsenal, its north London rival. Arsenal is nine points behind Chelsea.In the days early game, Southampton recovered from falling behind in the sixth minute to beat Bournemouth 3-1, with striker Jay Rodriguez scoring twice.Heres a closer look at Sundays games:---MANCHESTER CITY 2, ARSENAL 1Arsenal squandered a lead to lose 2-1 for the second time this week -- and just like against Everton on Tuesday, Arsene Wenger blamed his players second-half tiredness as well as the referee.The referees are protected like lions in the zoo, the Arsenal manager said, having complained that both of Citys goals should have been disallowed for offside.Sane canceled out a fifth-minute goal from Theo Walcott by racing onto David Silvas pass -- potentially from a marginal offside position -- to slot past Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech. Wenger also felt Silva was offsside, and in Cechs line of vision, when the goalkeeper was beaten by Sterlings low shot. Air Jordan 3 Ireland. Guardiola preferred to talk about the exceptional pass from De Bruyne that set Sterling free for the winner, which meant City has come out of a tough spell -- capped by a chastening 4-2 loss at Leicester last weekend -- with two straight victories this week.We are learning little by little, said Guardiola, who has been criticized by some for not adapting his tactics to the Premier League.---TOTTENHAM 2, BURNLEY 1Burnley manager Sean Dyche was aggrieved that Tottenham substitute Moussa Sissoko was still on the field to set up Rose for his winning goal.Moments before playing in Rose, Sissoko had been booked for a high challenge on Stephen Ward.It was a blind challenge, a high challenge and simply a red card, said Dyche.Burnley took the lead against the run of play at White Hart Lane through Ashley Barnes in the 21st minute, but conceded a strike by Dele Alli six minutes later.It was Spurs fourth win in their last five games in all competitions---BOURNEMOUTH 1, SOUTHAMPTON 3Rodriguez has been looking for a performance to kick-start his career since returning from a long spell out with damaged knee ligaments.Two second-half goals to cap a comeback at Bournemouth might just be it.Rodriguez scored from close range in the 48th, then fired in a dipping shot from the edge of the area in the 85th to triple his goal tally for the league campaign.Rodriguez had just forced his way into Englands squad when he sustained a cruciate knee ligament injury in April 2014 that ruled him out for more than a year. He had a poor 2015-16 campaign as he recovered from the injury, and had been below Charlie Austin in Southamptons pecking order of strikers before Austin hurt his shoulder this month.With Austin potentially out for up to four months, Rodriguez might have a prolonged run in Claude Puels team.Nathan Akes header put Bournemouth in front in the sixth minute, before Ryan Bertrand equalized in the 14th. Southampton climbed to seventh. ' ' '
